Rehabilitation services are vital to the care we provide at Lockney Health & Rehab. Our nursing home consists of therapists, physicians, nurses, and caregivers, working together to help our residents maximize our rehabilitative programs:
Lockney Health & Rehab understands that pain, uneasiness, and other forms of physical discomfort can reduce one’s quality of life. Hence, we have physical therapists in our nursing home. Therapy services include:
These exercises aim to correct muscle imbalance, develop good posture, strengthen muscles, and improve flexibility and range of motion.
This hands-on intervention provides relaxation and reduces stress. Manual therapy includes stretching, massage, or joint mobilization.
Modalities can reduce inflammation or pain, improve blood circulation, and promote healing. These include hot and cold therapy, electrical stimulation, and more.
Physical therapy services are best for residents who have:
- Poor balance and posture
- Undergone recent surgery
- Pain or inflammation
Our occupational therapists at Lockney Health & Rehab will assess each resident’s level of independence in terms of self-care, functional ability, activities of daily living, and cognitive skills. Then, we create a customized therapeutic plan to address our residents’ needs to become as independent as possible.
Occupational therapy (OT) utilizes meaningful daily activities, leisure, and socialization to restore functional skills. As soon as our residents regain their ability to care for themselves, they can live independently and be able to spend each day with little to no assistance. The ultimate goal of OT is to allow someone to take control of his or her everyday life.
At Lockney Health & Rehab, we want our residents to stay as healthy as possible while under our care. However, we also understand that some of them may have trouble with swallowing or speaking due to underlying medical conditions. Thus, we have speech therapists to help them improve their eating and communication skills using proven speech-language approaches.
We have designed speech therapy for our residents who have problems with:
- Fluency (stuttering)
- Feeding or swallowing
- Expressive or receptive problems
- Slow/slurred speech
